Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox) Like Supporting Actor, the frontrunner in Best Actor has also jumped hurdles and through hoops to avoid the pitfalls of his problematic film to come out largely unscathed.

2018 Oscars: Is this the year Meryl Streep finally misses?

The always venerable Meryl Streep finally vulnerable in an Oscar race? I feel like we have this discussion every other year.

2018 Oscars: Can you get an acting Oscar nomination with no precursors?

  The short answer? Yes. It’s happened quite a bit, actually.
